Yeah vertical stitching is two lines (small "e" Levi, of course). I'm pretty sure it is authentic (the place had a bunch of vintage lee, levi etc) and it looks correct (+ who would fake this and distress it perfectly to boot,I paid $20 for it). I'm just wondering if some Levi nerd knows the detail of Canadian production (made in Canada). Factory closed (big surprise) but they seem to have been active for a while. Anyway really happy about the find.
